"This novel takes us on a journey through the experience of a thirty something mother of one fairly neglected infant and wife of a long-suffering husband, as she and her best friend decide to get back at those more successful than themselves by doing even better. Success in this case is embodied in the character of Zelda Williams, the narrator's bete noir, and when she wins an award for her latest bleeding-heart documentary, the embittered, unemployed, usually stoned duo are galvanised into action. Determined to bring their dream to the big screen, they plot and plan, and soon enough the reader is caught up in a chaotic rigmarole featuring outlandish outfits, poisonous barbs and nightmare scenarios, none of which escapes the satirist s sharp eye, no matter how intoxicated the narrator becomes.
